Each was young and inexperienced in the ways of the world. John Leggett explores their lives, their loves, their friendships, and their writing and publishing experiences to discover what ultimately and tragically failed them.Ross and Tomportrays two gifted writers and their final descent into that Fitzgeraldian crack-up where "in the real dark night of the soul it is always three o'clock in the morning."Leggett, John is the author of 'Ross and Tom Two American Tragedies' with ISBN 9780306809927 and ISBN 0306809923.
